EXPRESSION OF SPACE
You are to design a combine space; a workplace where the end-user can work and live under the same roof, with considerations on how to fit it all in and yet achieved good comfort. This task shall give an idea how to cope with small spaces; living in a small space means to focus on good organization as well as design. The most important things to keep in mind are the functional needs, communal needs, personal needs, and privacy needs. Different combination of living are known by creating different plans of the space and using your creative mind to create multi functional furniture.
The space given will be a two-20-footer shipping containers where you can configure the
layout according to the site. The location of the project is in located in between the Royal
Belum state park that you have identified earlier [location and its surroundings] to determine exactly how your ‘escapade living’ is placed. There are also some issues like how to survive and daily activities that need to be address before we can start with the design.
The units will design on the ground/cantilever/attachment using lightweight materials for private use as:
Double Occupancy; Temporary home & working spaces; A specific user/profession &
determine his/hers of their environment: profession & environment
* You are allowed to utilize the “in-between spaces” of the containers as well as being part of the whole design ideas.
This is my final project for this semester!!!!!!!YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After i getting know about my artist – Nick Veasey and designed a portable casing for him, I need to design a container house in 1:25 scale with using only 2 containers so he can travel to there whenever he want to escape from the hustle and bustle city life.
The container house that I designed is located in Tasik Temenggor in Royal Belum Rainforest, Perak. I choose a area which is on the lake and beside an island because he can enjoy the beauty of the oldest rainforest in Malaysia and at the same time, he can swim in the lake.Its such a enjoy trip for him whenever he go there.
In this design, I choose to overlap the 2 containers at one of the end so it can perform the “L-shaped” from the top. I designed this house with a very minimalist design same as his art works which are very minimalist and simple. The colour scheme that i used in this house grey-wish blue or blue , dark shade of brown and wood colour as the contrast for my design.
The silent pin-up “crit” fr my progress when I’m doing this project:
As you can see from the pictures slide show below, my living room/bedroom can be rotate which is playing a role as a contrast element in my design. Its made from 2 pieces of circular planes which are the ceiling and the floor for that area make a contrast for this whole design because that’s the only area using organic shape to build.
Last but not least, I called my designed container house – INSIDE OUT. Why? Because you can’t judge the book by its cover, same thing to this design. The main contrast thing or in the other way to say it, “the inner beauty” of my design is not on the exterior but its in my design.
